    I never had an X-Box and want to get one for my son- so he and I can play War For Cybertron.
    I want to spend as little as possible - but I am not sure about "refurbished" options. I also dont know about the Arcade version as opposed to the Elite or Pro etc.
    Whats the best place and best deal to get an x-box? In store or online.

    Don't go for a refurbished console at all.

    Buy the new Xbox 360 Slim, giant hard drive and new sexiness FTW!

    This. I seriously would not get anything but the slim, even if it means saving a bit longer.

    NOT bashing the XBox, but it's going to be on multiple platforms... if cost is your biggest concern, there are other options than that. Unless you're dead set on XBox, compare prices on the console + the game + plus extra controllers, etc. you may need. XBox may well come out ahead, I'm not sure.

    The new slim is a good deal. I've seriously been debating trading in my Halo edition for it. Great HD size and modest price for the new hardware. My only question is (do I keep my hardrive or will MS let me redownload all my purchases?)

    According to Amazon.com

    Xbox 360 Slim $299.99. WFC $57.99

    PS3 Slim $299.99. WFC $59.99

    They seem pretty even, i'm guessing a similar price in stores over there?

    if you plan on not going online (ever), you could always pick up the 360 (fatty) arcade. And if Target still has the deal going on (you get a $50 gift card), you could get the system and game for $160 ($150 system - $50 gc used for game). And if they dont have the deal, you'd still be spending $210 ($150 less than the slim+game).

    Thanks for the advice! I think I am going to go to Target!
    Just called them though and the $50 giftcard deal ended Saturday

    that's what i figured but with them trying to get rid of the fatties, i figured they might have kept that going til all were gone.

    Will the Arcade let you save locally, or do you need one of the USB memory sticks?
